Download cwm-root-gtab2.zip (nycbjr)

Download Odin3-v1.85_3.zip

Samsung Drivers - Not required if you have Samsung Kies installed. These are the same drivers that are included with Kies.


Root
Copy cwm-root-gtab2.zip to the ROOT of your sdcard ( /mnt/extSdCard ). This is the sdcard in the slot. The /mnt/sdcard folder is in the internal memory and isn't recognized by xoomdev's recovery.

Turn off your tablet and restart it in download mode by pushing and holding down the Power and Volume DOWN buttons at the same time. Push the Volume UP to get into download mode. Don't plug the tablet into the computer yet.

If you installed Samsung's Kies software, make sure it is closed and not running.

Extract Odin3 v1.85.exe and run it.

Connect the tablet to the computer.

The first box under ID:COM will be yellow and shows the current com port you are connected to. If you can't connect, try another USB port.

In Odin, click the PDA button. Select the *.tar.md5 file you downloaded above and click the START button. Let Odin do it's thing. When it's done, the tablet will reboot.

Disconnect the tablet from the computer. Turn the tablet off and restart it in recovery mode by pushing and holding the Power and Volume UP buttons at the same time.

Once you are in recovery, use the volume button to scroll up/down and the power button to select an option. Select install zip from sdcard. Choose the cwm-root-gtab2.zip file you already copied to the root of the sdcard.

When the rooting is finished, choose reboot system now in the recovery menu.

That's it. If everything went well, you should now be rooted.


Optional Flashable Recoverys
Flash these zip files through recovery manager.

codeworkx_recovery.zip - Latest Clockwork Recovery from codeworkx.

twrp-recovery-gt3110.zip - TWRP Touch Recovery from nycbjr and TWRP.

espressowifi-recovery-5-18.zip - Recovery included in tar packages from xoomdev.

<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 0)

EDIT:
The Odin output above is the result if you weren't connected to the tablet. Make sure that the first box under ID:COM is yellow and shows the com port you are connected to.

That process should only take a few seconds to finish. It sounds like you were finally able to get connected and download completed without error. No need for Odin after that.

That's the same firmware that my GT2 came with and it hasn't been a problem. From what I understand, the thread above by jcase only applies if your tablet received a firmware update after you got it. If you had UEALCB originally and it updated to UEALD3, then you would need to follow his directions.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong...

Noob problem here.
I followed the directions step by step, but get “E:signature verification failed” in the system recovery mode.

<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/003> Initialzation..
<ID:0/003> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/003> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/003> recovery.img
<ID:0/003> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/003> RQT_CLOSE !!
<ID:0/003> RES OK !!
<ID:0/003> Completed..
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 1 / failed 0)
<ID:0/003> Removed!!
<ID:0/004> Added!!
<ID:0/004> Removed!!

I updated from P3113UEALCB to P3113UEALD3 before attempting root, does that make any difference? I have tried multiple times with the same results. I apologize if this is a stupid question, I appreciate any help. Thanks.
(im off to work now, but will check back ASAP)

That process should only take a few seconds to finish. It looks like your download completed without error, and the tablet should have rebooted. No need for Odin after that.

How long did yours take?


it's okay now.. i'm just stupid to hit start in odin even though the connection to the device is not yet confirmed (that's why the Added!! part is in last). :P

mine is rooted now thanks to your guide.

but not before doing this first http://rootzwiki.com...very-overwrite/
